Learn about the techniques attackers use to evade detection and how to defend against them. Sign up for our webinar on June 9th.

Overview

Early detection of hidden adversaries

To minimise the impact of security breaches, it is essential to identify them as early as possible. Cyber threat hunting facilitates the early detection of attacks, using high-fidelity telemetry and the latest threat intelligence to proactively identify the activities of known and unknown adversaries.

Definition

What is cyber threat hunting?

Cyber threat hunting is the process of proactively searching across networks and endpoints to identify threats that evade security controls. Using a combination of manual and machine assisted techniques, threat hunters search for indicators of compromise (IOCs) across an organisation’s IT environments.

By hunting for evidence that a breach has occurred, threat hunting enables security teams to identify unknown threats and respond quickly and effectively to them before they cause damage and disruption.

Managed Threat Hunting

How can a managed threat hunting service from Redscan help?

Threat hunting is resource-intensive, requiring a deep understanding of cyber threats and the tools, tactics and procedures (TTPs) of criminal adversaries. Without this level of expertise, organisations risk leaving themselves exposed.

ThreatDetect™, Redscan’s outcome-focused Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service integrates the latest detection technologies and intelligence plus a team of cyber offensive security professionals to provide the hunting capability needed to proactively detect threats.

Our experienced team of Red and Blue Team security professionals have a deep knowledge of offensive security and apply this knowledge to help better identify unknown threats. This is informed and enhanced by intelligence from Redscan Labs, our specialist threat research and analytics division.
